Question B: Explain the role of research in social psychology. Question C: In Week One, we are learning about self-esteem and self-understanding. One concept that I would like you explore is the concept of The Looking Glass Self. What is The Looking Glass Self? What effect does this have on social psychology? How as The Looking Glass Self affected you and your relationships? Question D: People with high self-esteem may believe they are above the law and can do anything they want. The following article provides a perspective on narcissism, bullying and self-esteem. Bullying is a behavior seen by those with high self-esteem..or higher than average self-esteem. Hitler is an example of a person with higher than average self-esteem. Throughout much research on Hitler, he was never found to have anything other than higher than usual self-esteem. My thought is that his profile fits what this article demonstrates very well. I am interested in knowing your thoughts. Who provides memorable appraisals in your life: parents, teachers or peers? Which has been most positive? How have the appraisals threatened or boosted your self-esteem?
